Cacoethes 19-04-2022 11:32 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Terrible nights sleep due to being unwell (bad cold like symptoms and possible migraine, or at least the beginning of one) but after lemsip and paracetamol I feel much better!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 19-04-2022 11:42 AM

I'm ok. Trying to talk to the clozapine clinic.

Cacoethes 19-04-2022 11:52 AM

Fun times!
Is it your blood test today?

Zurg 19-04-2022 12:38 PM

Hi everyone.

Hope you'll continue to feel okay Beckie. Being trolled by your body is always inconvenient.
Hope you'll get through to someone Tamo!!!

I've just had a two hour nap…. My head was on the egde of a hysteric ragefit so i decided that a nap was probably the best Way to handle that…!!!

Cacoethes 19-04-2022 01:44 PM

Thank you Zurg!
I am feeling better now *touch wood!*
My body is a complete troll in general anyway!

How do you feel after your nap?

Zurg 19-04-2022 03:19 PM

I felt okay right after the nap. Now i'm back to want to smash everything in sight again….. maybe i need another nap??

Cacoethes 19-04-2022 04:40 PM

Oh no :(
Another nap might be good!

one_step_closer 19-04-2022 05:31 PM

Hi everyone. I've only just got online, had a busy day with the gym group and buses taking ages to come. A woman stopped and spoke to me for about half an hour, I don't even know her. I felt like I was going to cry! Another person I need to try and avoid.

Cacoethes 19-04-2022 05:39 PM

Hey lindsay!
Sounds like it's been pretty full on today!

one_step_closer 19-04-2022 05:46 PM

Yeah, feels like a bit much. I'm getting a takeaway because I'm too stressed to cook and I don't want to just have salad. What an excuse! I shouldn't be getting things like takeaways while I'm waiting to hear how much money I owe the ESA people.

How are you getting on now Beckie?

tamobhuuta 19-04-2022 06:07 PM

Yeah, it was a blood test. Subsequent tests will be in my home town, yippee!

Cuddles for all.

Cacoethes 19-04-2022 06:11 PM

I'm ok thanks lindsay!
Been out quite a bit today to get some stuff done and then went into work to say hi and have a drink. Then had an amazon delivery.
I am also considering getting takeaway because my body wants something that isn't soup lol!

That's good tamo!

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 10:23 AM

Morning everyone!

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 12:46 PM

Where is everyone?!

not_so_insig 20-04-2022 01:47 PM

I am here Beckie. I had 5 postcards arrive today via postcrossing. Most I ever had in one day. It took ages to register them all and read them.

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 01:58 PM

Oh wow!
I told my best friend about post crossing. He has a thing for postcards lol!

not_so_insig 20-04-2022 02:20 PM

It's all Jenna's fault as she mentioned it here which is how come I joined.

*considers reporting mod*

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 02:26 PM


I'm at the hairdressers!
The bleach is burning slightly but that is normal!

one_step_closer 20-04-2022 03:06 PM

Afternoon everyone.

That's a lot of postcards Dawn.

Are you getting your hair a cool colour Beckie?

haha, feel free, the majority of the post reports that are done at the moment are of me :P

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 03:35 PM

Hey lindsay!
How are you?

Yes i am getting my hair a cool colour! Or colours rather!

Lol! I knew that would summon you Jenna!

not_so_insig 20-04-2022 04:27 PM

I knew that it would summon Jenna too.

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 05:28 PM


What's everyone up to this afternoon/evening?
I'm just back from the hairdressers. Waiting for cpn to either turn up or call. I'm not sure which one!
And I have an amazon parcel coming. And a tesco delivery!

Zurg 20-04-2022 05:48 PM

I love dyeing my hair!!! I do it myself though because i find the hairdressers a bit annoying even on a good day….

I have a headache. Woe!!! I kind of want to go an take some paracetamol but i have this distinct feeling that my life Will Fall apart if i leave my comfy couch. Double woe!!,

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 05:55 PM

I love going to the hairdressers!
I have lots of different colours kind of blended so would find it hard to do myself!

Oh nooo! Headaches are awful.
Take paracetamol! Leaving the couch can be really hard but it will be worth it!

not_so_insig 20-04-2022 05:56 PM

I am waiting for a parcel too Beckie. Hope you got crisps in your tesco shopping order. Though there's apparently a shortage because the oil that's used in the process comes from Russia.

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 06:11 PM

Darn i forgot to get crisps!!!
I did get biscuits though!
I'll pick up some crisps in town tomorrow

Ohh i didn't know that!
That's not good :/
This whole Russia thing has really been making me sad lately

one_step_closer 20-04-2022 06:11 PM

Your hair looks amazing Beckie! Sounds like you have a busy day. Has your CPN been in touch yet? Have your deliveries been? So much!

Definitely quickly run for the Paracetamol Kat and then run back to the couch.

Crisps shortage :sad: I hate the world right now.

one_step_closer 20-04-2022 06:14 PM


What biscuits did you get?

The way the world is right now is making me sad too.

All the price hikes too. It's going to be hard to afford things.

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 06:25 PM

Thanks lindsay!
Cpn said she is coming. She finishes at 6 today so will probably be here soon.
My parcel has been, tesco is coming between 6-10! Hopefully I'll be able to stay awake after the olanzapine!

I got custard creams and chocolate hob nobs!

Oh god the price hikes. They are worrying me too
State of the world right now

Zurg 20-04-2022 06:27 PM

I've taken some paracetamol and currently having a foot spa because life is ****, the world is **** and maybe a good foot spa Will bring forth the illusion of better times…

The war is crazy. Putin is a power hungry ******** who is surrounded by people of equal craziness as himself or people who are too scared to disagree with anything he wants. I had the very naive hope that my generation would be the generation that didn't see any major wars through their lifetime…. Now who knows where the hell this is going to end???

Prices have gone up insanely fast here in Denmark and they are not about to stop anytime soon. I feel so terrible about people who can barely make ends meet already. We've seen stories here of people who have to leave their homes and move elsewhere because they can't afford the electricity and heating bills….

I am willing to pay more for everything if it means we can stop this madness happening in Ukraine. But some people don't have the luxury to be able to afford that and they are basically screwed. It's a ****ing sad time to be alive in!!!

one_step_closer 20-04-2022 06:29 PM

I hope it goes well with your CPN.

It can be hard to fight against drowsiness, I hope your delivery comes at a time where you can get everything put away and you can get to sleep when you need to.

one_step_closer 20-04-2022 06:31 PM

I hope your paracetamol and foot spa can change the world for the better, or at least make you feel better Kat.

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 06:34 PM

Thanks lindsay

Completely agree zurg. It's bloody awful

not_so_insig 20-04-2022 08:12 PM

My parcel is still not here :angry: It was supposed to be here between 4 and 6 pm. I have an amazon parcel coming tomorrow I will not be happy if the same thing happens again.

Zurg 20-04-2022 08:24 PM

Dawn, sometimes i wonder what happens to delivery people. Do they just drive ahead, deliver a few parcels and then go 'nah, this sucks!! I'm gonna go and smoke some weed and drink some beers instead!!'
I legit Think this is the only logical explanation as to why parcels sometimes just disappear in the parcel delievery system…..

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 08:26 PM

I think I'd do that if i was a delivery driver XD
Especially as it's 420 dau today :tongue2:

Zurg 20-04-2022 09:12 PM

Yeah, if i was driving around in a delievery Van, i'd had probably alredy smoked something funny and had more than my fair share of alcoholic beverages seeing as i don't drive, don't know how to and i Will never ever desire to try for a driver's license. Some sort of illegal substance would have to be involved in that instance!!!! O_o

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 09:25 PM

I don't drive either! Even if i went a year seizure free i still wouldn't. Not worth the risk!

Must be a **** job in general though!

not_so_insig 20-04-2022 09:32 PM

I have had my parcel. About 2 hours late mind you.

Cacoethes 20-04-2022 09:34 PM

That's good dawn.
Maybe they got stuck in traffic or something

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 07:50 AM

Morning everyone!
I was up at 6am for some reason lol

Zurg 21-04-2022 09:32 AM

Morning Beckie.

I was up less than two hours ago and i still feel like i have yet to wake up….
How are you??

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 09:39 AM

Morning zurg!
I'm ok thanks!
Should be getting discharged today! Though i am yet to find out if i actually have to go back to the ward for ward round or not! I'm gonna call the ward after 9am so they'll be able to confirm with the drs.

tamobhuuta 21-04-2022 10:53 AM

I thought you got discharged last week?

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 10:58 AM

Only on home leave for the week!
Official discharge today!
And it's online thankfully!

tamobhuuta 21-04-2022 12:00 PM

Is it just a formality?

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 12:41 PM

Pretty much!
But i am not officially discharged yet! Ugh!
Apparently the CTO thing has to be done in person.
So amhps are coming to my house on Monday to sort it. And THEN i can finally be discharged!

one_step_closer 21-04-2022 03:23 PM

Sounds annoying all the things that need to be done to make it official Beckie.

You feeling more awake yet Kat?

How are you Tamo?

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 03:25 PM

It is very annoying!
I've also had a blood test booked for me!
Just got the text saying 'confirmation of appointment' and I'm like...what appointment?! Lol

How are you lindsay?
